Not For Long

Album: single release only (2014)
Charted: 80

Songfacts®:

  • B.o.B raps here about a girl he is attracted to and desperately wants. He is confident she will be with him despite the fact she is dating someone else. The rapper declares to her, "You know he don't fit, he ain't tailored for you."

    A similarly brash Trey Songz croons the hook in which he states the girl might be somebody else's, but "not for long" as it's he who is her type.
  • The song was produced by Glee Assistant Music Producer Mark Nilan Jr. with P-Lo, who is a member of the production team The Invasion. The pair previously teamed up to supply the beat for Kevin Gates' "In My Feelings."
